We’ve added some new products containing Tranexamic acid which is perhaps the most effective and safest skin bleaching agent yet discovered. Tranexamic acid or TA/TXA is often used orally to treat people with serious injuries and improve blood coagulation. It’s skin lightening properties were discovered by accident and doctors have been using it to whiten skin for over 30 years now.
Tranexamic acid has been more widely used in manyAsian cosmetic products where it’s often combined with an apple seed extract.
Studies have shown that Tranexamic acid is a very effective treatment for melasma, age spots, and freckles. K
A clinical study by Kondou looking at the effects of a TA emulsion applied to areas of the skin affected by melasma and freckles. The study involved 33 patients, 25 with melasma and 8 with freckles, who used TA topically for 5 to 18 weeks, after which their skin pigmentation was visually examined by a dermatologist.
Doctors found that the TA emulsion had improved the dark spots and freckles in 20 patients with melasma (80%) and 6 (75%) with freckles. No side effect was recognized and thus the use of TA topically was deemed safe.
We’ve combined Tranexamic acid with 20% Azelaic acid and .1% Retin A aka tretinoin to enhance penetration and a version with 10% mequinol for ultimate skin lightening. So if you have melasma or need to even and whiten your skin tone, remove and prevent dark spots and pigmentation take a closer look at our TA products and see if they are for you.
